Late Davenport doorman honored with memorial display

The Historic Davenport Hotel has a new tribute to one of its most beloved family members.

John Reed was a doorman and longest-tenured employee of more than 75 years at the hotel. He passed away peacefully in his home in April, but his legacy will live on forever.

A glass case holding his red doorman coat along with a placard describing his long career and life are now on display for visitors to see.

John Reed was a wonderful man and will always be remembered in the Spokane community.
